Finally, someone grabbed some (2D) video of Paper Mario 3DS

For some reason, it has been really difficult getting some video footage of the 3DS.
 
Maybe it's because cameras weren't allowed on the show floor, or they just didn't bother since you won't be able to see the 3D. But someone bothered/got away with it, and we got some badly shot video footage of Paper Mario 3DS (and some bit of beta Mario Kart 3DS).
 
Seems like they are going to push the contrast between the 2D characters and the 3D world this time, which should be very interesting visually, and of course, it's a whole new game, so it should be awesome. Mario Kart 3DS ain't worth talking about much, since it probably won't come out for another 2 or 3 years, and the tiny tech demo was not playable and used assets from previous games (except the music).

Man, I want that Mario Kart 3DS... oh, and Paper Mario! 
 
Maybe its just me, but it seems like all the booth girls were bored out of their minds. I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of them are just pretty faces.

Nice find. Shame the footage was short and hard to watch.

Man stereoscopic 2d sprites will surely blow my mind.

Any attractive girl at any games convention is a hired pretty face. That goes without saying. But also, customer service 101, both men and women respond better to women.

They were probably unhappy too. Reggie pretty much hired them to carry a 3DS strapped on to their hips as grown men with cameras play it in front of you.

As long as it has that same anarchic sense of humor, it's a day one purchase for me.

I still don't understand where the actual 3D footage of the 3DS is. There are 3D cameras. There were people with 3D cameras at E3. 
Give me some cross-eye or anaglyph 3DS video footage ffs.
